On May 24, 2021, the Duluth (MN) News-Tribune published an editorial piece about the value of trade with Cuba if the current embargo was lifted. A bill introduced in the Senate by cosponsors Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) and Jerry Moran (R-KS) would open trade between our nations, offering food and other supplies to Cuba and jobs and a new export outlet to the US. The article is framed in terms of what it would mean to Minnesota, but it begs the question, what would the financial value be to Wisconsin as well? Ending the blockade is not just right the right thing to do, it is a fiscally sound thing to do as well. Read the article here.
